Hello, I just finished upgrading my computer. I have a 4TB WD Black Hard drive and a WD SN750 SSD installed.
I installed new copy of Windows 10 on the SSD, and it shows as C: drive, and I intended to use the 4TB Hard Drive for everything else. However the HHD does not show up in Windows Explorer for me to save anything to.
The 4TB drive does show up in my Asus bios, but not as a bootable drive, only the ssd and my cd/dvd drive show up as bootable.
The 4tb drive shows up and passes all checks with Western Digital Data Lifeguard Diagnostics tool.
The 4tb drive also shows up under Windows Device Manager, its says it is working properly and the best drivers are installed. Searching with Windows Update does not bring up any new drivers.
It also does show up under Disk Management, but not as a named drive or Volume, only a Disc #, with two Unallocated sections
Do I need to partition or format the 4tb HHD to get Windows to recognize it properly as a writable drive?
Or is there possibly something wrong with the drive?
I apologize if this is a simple fix. This is the first time I’ve installed an SSD and HDD together.
